Kuala Lumpur, 10 January 2023 – From 2 January to 5 February, Suria KLCC is outfitted to transport shoppers to the streets of olden China during its Chinese New Year campaign.
Malaysia’s premier shopping destination will kick-start the Year of the Water Rabbit in a grand way with Malaysia’s Biggest Rabbit Replica Made Of Gold Coins, as certified by the Malaysia Book of Records 2023. This magnificent display can be found at the KLCC Esplanade.
“Suria KLCC celebrates the cultural values and customs that define the Chinese New Year – values such as family togetherness, shared prosperity and tradition. To that end, our team has worked tirelessly to curate an immersive multi-sensory experience that will engage and delight visitors at our mall this festive season.
“Honouring a holiday that is steeped in ancestry and heritage, you will see that the Suria KLCC Centre Court has been transformed into an ancient Chinese town, inspired by the magnificent ancient cities and villages of China such as Pingle, Dali and Lijiang,” said Andrew Brien, CEO of Suria KLCC Sdn Bhd.
This ancient oriental setup features a traditional Chinese gate tower as its centrepiece, surrounded by building structures covered in aged wooden façades with upturned eaves characteristic of traditional Chinese architecture.
As shoppers prepare to celebrate the Chinese New Year on 22 January, they can find an assortment of offerings in this old town setting as it comes alive with a vibrant bazaar. Shoppers will also find great photo opportunities with traditional Chinese elements such as the rickshaw, while the many red lanterns that line these streets will also set a joyous festive ambience for all.
This charming décor extends to Ramlee Mall, so there are plenty of excellent backdrops for photos. A photobooth providing complimentary photo print-outs and e-copies is also available for shoppers to commemorate festive memories with loved ones.
Amid the ancient Chinese town setting, visitors will also discover a Wishing Tree where they can share their hopes and aspirations for the new year. In the spirit of the season, monetary donations made at the Wishing Tree will be pledged in support of Suria KLCC’s partner NGOs, in furthering the Mental Health Awareness agenda.
Tradition also gets an update with the sparkling waters of our interactive “river” filled with realistic koi fishes. All our visitors can experience the novelty of flipping virtual coins from the screen of a tablet and into the “river”. Apart from that, Suria KLCC has also prepared shows and attractions to delight shoppers. Catch the Lion Dance performance at the Centre Court on 7, 14, 21, 22 and 23 January at 2pm; while the Acrobatic Lion Dance, held at the Esplanade, will happen on 8, 10, 15, 22 and 23 January at 5pm.
In conjunction with the Chinese New Year campaign, Suria KLCC is launching its much-awaited Suria KLCC Shopping e-Vouchers (SKLCC e-Vouchers).
As part of their plan to introduce this e-Voucher and reward festive shoppers, those who spend RM1,500 and above in two receipts at any specialty store between 2 and 20 January will receive RM100 worth of SKLCC e-Vouchers and an exclusive set of Suria KLCC Red Packets.
Additionally, the first 200 shoppers who purchase RM1,000 worth of SKLCC e-Vouchers during this festive campaign will receive an additional RM100 worth of the e-Vouchers.
“As you and your loved ones do your new year shopping at Suria KLCC, I invite you to make the most out of this introductory promotion,” Brien added.
